Man Steals And Sells Grandmother’s Underwear For N2000 In Ekiti –

A man who stole and sold a grandmother’s underwear for N2,000, has been arrested by the officers attached to the Ekiti Police Command. The suspect identified as  21-year-old Efoghae Friday who stole the underwear belonging to Modupe Adekoya, who lives in a three-bedroom flat on 15, Olorunsogo Street, Basiri, Ado Ekiti, the Ekiti state capital, was arrested on Tuesday afternoon after a relative of theft victim made a complaint. The man who stole and sold a grandmother’s underwear for N2000 in Ekiti, was arrested alongside three others who have been transferred to the New Iyin police station on Bank Road, Ado Ekiti. 

Recounting her ordeal, Madam Adekoya, said: ”I know Friday very well as he usually come to assist me in doing some domestic chores at home. To appreciate him, I use to give him meals but I never thought he could do this.”

I had washed my pants and put two of them out to dry at about 3am on June 10, at the corridor in my house. But when I went to remove it the next morning, I found out that one was missing, then I raised the alarm.

After series of investigations, a relative who suspected Friday called him and they urged him to confess promising not to be angry with him. He did eventually confessed to stealing the underwear and that was when we invited the police to arrest him. When he was arrested, he took the police to the house of some three boys he claimed one of them had asked him to fetch the underwear and promised to give him N2,000.” 

It was further gathered that the family of Madam Adekoya have since hired a lawyer, Layi Obisesan, to ensure that the matter is pursued to a logical conclusion. They are also demanding that the police investigate the matter to the latter, charge Friday and others to court and also ensure that Madam Adekoya’s underwear is recovered.
